Earth Month Series: Responding to Climate Displacement

This episode discusses the challenges associated with migration and human displacement in the context of climate change, and explores policy responses available to international organisations. Given the complex interactions between climate change, conflict and displacement, many humanitarian agencies and NGOs are only just beginning to come to grips with the implications of climate change on displacement issues. 

Our host, Roshan Melwani, is joined by Dr. Nina Hall, an Assistant Professor of International Relations at John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. She previously worked as a Lecturer at the Hertie School of Governance, and was a Policy Officer at the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Her research focuses on international organizations, transnational advocacy, climate adaptation, and global refugee governance. Dr. Hall’s book “Displacement, Development and Climate Change”, explores how international organisations have evolved their mandates over time to incorporate climate change as an area of focus. This podcast delves into and builds on the insights offered by the book to see how our global humanitarian institutions can remain fit for purpose to respond to the challenge of climate change.  

This episode is hosted and researched by Roshan Melwani. Our executive producers are Livey Beha and Read Leask. To keep up with the latest on our episodes, follow us on Twitter @oxfordpolicypod and on Instagram @oxfordpolicypod_
